This evening CBS news aired an interview with Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Once again the Alaska governor displayed her own special command of important issues.
When asked to name a Supreme Court decision she disagreed with, she said:
Well, let’s see. There’s, of course, in the great history of America rulings there have been rulings, that’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American. And there are, those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but ….
When the question was repeated, she said:
Well, I could think of, of any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level. Maybe I would take issue with. But you know, as mayor, and then as governor and even as a vice president, if I’m so privileged to serve, wouldn’t be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today.
One thought on “Palin strikes again; please, governor, just go home”
Here’s one she should become familiar with, pronto: Edwards v. Aguillard.
I had to look that one up. She’d probably argue that the devil made the court rule that way.
Somehow I expected she’d at least be conversant with Roe v. Wade, being a woman and all, but there I go again with unwarranted expectations.
